Hello @t ,

In my testing, the page will show the style when you edit.

For example:

This is the page style when you edit, and the page is not published

When you forcibly leave the page and discard changes.

View the page again, the page will show the style when you edit

Hi @t ,

I followed the steps you provided to test:

Step1.Create a page and edit.

Step2.Save as draft.

Step3.Edit page again (Delete the contents I saved in draft in Step2)

Step4.Discard changes

After performing the above steps, I found that the page shows the contents that I operated in the Step3.

If you want to view the page contents of Step2 (Before discarding changes). Please go to the Site Pages library, then select the specified page and click on "Version history".

what if u add content to the page and save it as a draft. then u edit that same page but discard changes.

In my case, i save the page as draft with content in it. then i edit the same page but this time i discard changes. and e i loose the contents that i added when i saved the draft in the first place.

steps:
1. create a page and edit
2. save as draft
3. edit same page again
4. discard changes- in this step i loose the contents i saved in draft in step 2. i was expecting that the contents i had saved as draft in step 2 would be retained. am i incorrect?
